Simo Saarikoski
curator @ The W:OW Project – We Are one World

Simo Saarikoski (b.1980 in Finland) is multidisciplinary artist who works extensively in different fields of visual art. In his work he explores time and it’s phenomena, as well as human impact on the environment and how to find mercy for yourself in the era of social media. Saarikoski uses video, sound and watercolor painting separately or in the form of installations. He has performed with the group – Messianic Research Centre for Visual Ethics (MRCVE, funded in 2002) around Europe and US. The group’s modus operandi is to openly incorporate both scientific and artistic methods in its works. With the Finland’s state art price winner, art collective – T.E.H.D.A.S. he has realized several projects and exhibitions (e.g. “Live and Dead Art” in Pori Art Museum, 2014) and worked as a performance art event organizer and curator in Pori, Finland.
